Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC Announces Investigation of Apogee Enterprises, Inc.

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC is conducting an investigation to
determine whether Apogee Enterprises, Inc. (“Apogee” or the “Company”)
and certain of its officers and directors made false and misleading
statements and/or omissions in violation of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

A class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the
District of Minnesota by another law firm on behalf of purchasers of the
common stock of Apogee Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: APOG) between June 28,
2018 and September 17, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

The complaint alleges that Apogee and certain of its officers and
directors (“Defendants”) misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that:
(1) Apogee lacked the required labor force in place to ramp-up its
production; (2) Apogee was unable to hire, train and retain new
employees; (3) Apogee’s productivity and margins would be negatively
impacted; and (4) as a result, Defendants’ statements about the Company’
business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or
lacked a reasonable basis.

On September 18, 2018, Apogee announced second quarter 2018 financial
results, reporting operating income of $1.7 million for its glass
segment, a decline from the $10.3 million in the previous year. Apogee

The lower operating margin was primarily driven by significantly
increased labor costs, lower productivity, and higher cost of quality,
as the segment was challenged to efficiently ramp-up production to meet
the higher than expected, short lead-time customer demand.

Apogee stated that its glass segment was overwhelmed with orders and
unable to meet rising demands. As a result, Apogee reduced its full-year
guidance, “primarily due to lower than expected second quarter results
and decreased profit expectations for Architectural Glass.” The Company
now anticipated revenue growth of 8 to 10 percent and earnings of only
$3.00 to $3.20 per diluted share, down from $3.35 to $3.55 per share.
During its earnings call held the same day, Apogee admitted it was
ill-prepared for the challenge of ramping-up production in its glass
factories: “[u]nfortunately, the slope of this recovery was
substantially steeper than we expected, and we struggled to rapidly ramp
up production levels in our factories.” The price of Apogee shares fell
from $48.22 on September 17, 2018 to $42.28 on September 18, 2018 to
$41.76 on September 19, 2018.

Cohen Milstein encourages all investors who purchased Apogee common
stock between June 28, 2018 and September 17, 2018, or former employees
